Working Regionally: Making and Touring Theatre beyond London

Thursday 2 March, 10am-1pm

Ever wondered about making and touring theatre regionally but didn’t know where to begin? This event is for you!

Particularly aimed at BAME theatre makers, Working Regionally… is designed to offer a practical introduction to the opportunities for developing and presenting new work outside the capital.  Featuring case studies and discussions covering venue partnerships, funding opportunities and audiences, this event is delivered by house, an initiative aimed at increasingly the range, quality and audience for contemporary theatre across the South East and East of England.

Attendees are encouraged to make the most of the day by staying on for Pitch Up in the afternoon (see below for Pitch Up booking info)

£5, lunch and refreshments included

Pitch Up

Thursday 2 March 2016, 1.30-6pm

Are you involved in making theatre? Would you like to explore collaboration with other people who make theatre? Are you looking for partners on a project? Then Pitch Up is for you!

All are welcome. Pitch Up is a relaxed and welcoming afternoon aimed at making new connections. It is comprised of 6min and 1min pitches from venues and theatre makers, with plenty of time scheduled in for informal conversations. Pitches are delivered to everyone in a spirit of openness and collaboration, and you don’t need to pitch to attend.

Pitch Up is timed to coincide with House’s latest seed funding open call; investments of £3000-£8000 to enable BAME theatre makers to explore new ideas in partnership with a regional venue. It is one of the hopes of this event that some of the partnerships formed at Pitch Up will be among this year’s recipients.

Attendees are also invited to stay on for the evening performance of The Dark by Nick Makoha.
